Videos and lessons to help Grade 7 students learn how to compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units.

For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2/1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour.

Unit Rate Word Problems

1) An amusement park had 350 people come in over the course of 7 hours. At this rate, how many would they expect to come over 15 hours? What was the rate per hour?

2) Sam can make 15 pizzas in 2.5 hours. At this rate, how many can he make in an 8 hour work day? What is Sam's rate per hour?

3) Over 5 days, Kimberly sheared 300 sheep. How many would she be able to shear in 26 days? What was he rate per day?
